Surviving an Oracle Java Audit
One year ago, Oracle dramatically changed how businesses can license Java moving forward. In effect, Oracle moved the goalposts such that companies can no longer license Java by the processor or named-user-plus model. Instead, Oracle now utilizes an employee-based licensing model where you must license every employee, full-time or part-time, regardless of whether they use Java. Unsurprisingly, Oracle’s definition of what constitutes an employee for licensing purposes is breathtakingly broad. With Oracle now aggressively pursuing companies for their Java usage, this session will explore what you need to know when Oracle comes knocking on your door.
